Crunchy Low Carb “Cracker Chips”


The one (okay, two) recommendations I make to EVERYBODY doing low carb. LEARN MORE

When mom served us her delicious soup, she also had some “crackers” and I’m totally stealing the idea. Thanks, mom!

Note: If you’re gluten-free/don’t do wheat products, the “Carb Balance” brand tortillas will not work for you. While most of my recipes are gluten and grain-free, we don’t have to avoid it specifically so sometimes, we don’t. Also, be aware that prepared products like the tortillas can slow down losses for some people. Bodies are beautifully unique in how they respond to food sometimes. Just a heads up.

But if the ingredients work for you, this recipe will solve those crunchy cravings like nobody’s business!

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
  • Shred your cheese and set aside. (Preshredded contains extra starch to keep it from sticking to itself and honestly, it just doesn't taste as good to me. But if that's what you've got, that's okay, too. )
  • Cover a baking sheet with foil, parchment or silicone liner for easy cleanup.
  • Cut or tear your tortillas into whatever shape you prefer, and spread out on the baking sheet.
  • Spread a little butter on each tortilla piece in the middle. Then sprinkle with your cheese.

You can use whatever cheese or low carb tortilla that you like. I prefer the Mission brand Carb Balance because it bakes up beautifully flaky and crunchy. I haven't always found that to be true with all brands. Each tortilla has 6 net carbs (19 total - 13 fiber).
I love these with soup or guacamole for a very satisfying side dish that tastes very indulgent. Yum!
